It's hard to believe that BCMC 2013 is already over.  Like all good entertainment acts, its participants left wanting more. The day started with more education sessions, including the very first Lumber Forecast and a condensed version of the very popular THE QUESTION: Optimize or Not?.

Once the show floor opened, attendees streamed in to follow up on the previous day's discussions and visit any exhibitors they missed the on Wednesday.  Most participants and exhibitors agreed they wanted even more time to spend on the show floor.  Amongst all the commotion, 20 attendees and exhibitors took a quick break to show off their skills draining threes.  

The competition came down to two finalists, with Simpson Strong-Tie's Jason Padilla swishing the winning shot here:

Plant tours have always been a part of BCMC, and this year was no different.  Due to popular demand, a second Toyota Plant tour was added to the last day.  Here, tour participants eagerly await departure to hopefully learn a few tips and tricks about the ultimate in lean manufacturing.


Finally, here is 2014 SBCA Secretary Jess Lohse (and BCMC Blogger) meeting with SBCA Executive Director Kirk Grundahl in the SBCA booth.  

Conversations like these were had thousands of times throughout the last two days.  If you missed BCMC this year, make sure to put next year's show on your calendar now: October 8-10, 2014. See you in Charlotte, NC!
